Onecent for the T.D. 010

Post  MauricioB on Tue Nov 21, 2017 11:19 pm

I was browsing some magazines with some years already and I found this model for Cox .010, it's interesting, I scanned the pages in case someone is interested, I think it would be an entertaining project with very good results!
If someone is encouraged and wants ... go ahead!

Nice one and it's a Randy Randolph design as well - even better!

Thanks for sharing Mauricio! That was published 27 years ago. Imagine the possibilities "today" with much lighter-weight radio gear!

Hey Roddie, thanks to you for going through the post! ... tell me, would not you like to try it? ... I do not know about you with respect to radio control, but I know it would be a beautiful model for those who start.
As you say friend, with today's electronics would be a guarantee of flight given its reduced wing load.
Would you place it as a future project for you? RC Plane

thanks for going through the post! .... I agree with you, it is a beautiful model and for that reason I decided to publish it, maybe there is someone wanting to make a model and this is a possibility that will surely give many moments of fun.

I would need to find a Cox Tee Dee .010 and learn how to fly radio-control.. but I have everything else needed to build the model. I want to learn how to fly someday.. because I have bought some radio-gear and airplane models too. It is a dream for now..

I started to design this airplane about 5 years ago.. some photos..








The wing-parts (ribs and spar) I designed and cut using a CNC router.

The spar is a 3-piece (I-beam) dado-jointed and assembled with thin CA. It is VERY strong and lightweight.




So much work.. then I stopped.. Shocked

great work Roddie, it looks very good ... that profile you chose is acrobatic and fast, it is not the best to fly learning or learn to fly. With that profile you can fly faster turns, barrels and inverted will be a pleasure, but to fly calmly and in the beginning, better a flat profile, good dihedral and to enjoy the first steps !!
